Circular saw won't turn off.

I made a cut, turned to set the saw down, and it kept running. The motor wouldn't stop until I unplugged it.

SOURCE: where is the lock button for the skill saw

I can't seem to access the parts view for your model, because of its age.
But I'm thinking skil probably hasn't changed things all that much.
Take a look at the 5450 and see if this doesn't help any...click here ...and scroll to page 7.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

My hitachi c8fb2 saw won't turn off


It sounds like your switch has a short circuit. It is quite unusual for this to happen and due to the nature of the fault I would highly advise not using the saw until it is sorted. If you are uneasy about working on the electrical parts of this you can find your nearest service agent on their website. Hitachi service page, put ypur postcode in the box on the top right.

I bent the depth of cut scale on a Craftsman 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw. How to true it so I can again set correct depths?


With the saw unplugged, lay it upside down on a bench or table. Put a small scrap of 2x4 against the blade and adjust until the depth of the blade matches the thickness of the 2x4. Lock it in place, Then bend or adjust the depth scale so that it reads 1-1/2 inches. Good luck.

Circular saw won't start after having cut pavers


You fried the motor and most of the time it isn't worth repairing, since the parts will cost you more that a replacement saw.

If you are going to continue to cut pavers, suggest you either take it very slow and cut 1 or .5 paver and then let it cool down. But a water cooled tile saw would be better.

How do I install the blade on a bosch cs10 circular saw


Their web site seems to be down at the moment but most circular saw you just need to lock the blade somehow. Sometimes putting the blade up against a piece of wood so it can't turn will get the job done. Unplug the saw so it can't run. Some saws come with a custom wrench to turn a custom bolt, others a regular combination wrench would work. There should be a bolt that goes into the center of the blade. To keep the bolt from coming out while cutting, they are reverse threaded so you loosen it by turning the bolt the reverse direction you on a normal bolt. take the bolt out and be careful you don't loose the washers on each side of the blade. Put in new blade and reverse the process of taking it apart.

Not cutting in straight line


Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material
